Complete integrated indices of History of Middle-earth volumes to complement new series. For the first time every index from each of the twelve volumes of The History Of Middle-earth has been published together in a single volume -- to create a supreme index charting the writing of Tolkien's masterpieces The Lord of The Rings and The Silmarillion. This stunning work of reference complements the fascinating History of Middle-earth series, now repackaged to complement the distinctive and classic style of the 'black cover' A-format paperbacks of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
J.R.R.Tolkien (1892-1973) was a distinguished academic, though he is best known for writing The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, plus other stories and essays. His books have been translated into over 30 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide

Keep something in mind. In the U.S. Houghton Mifflin publishes Tolkien's authorized works in hardback and trade paperback editions, while Ballantine Books publishes them as cheaper mass-market paperbacks. For some reason, Ballantine doesn't always make it clear that some of their titles are part of the same History of Middle-earth series as those published by Houghton Mifflin. If the title is the same, the content is the same. Which you buy depends on your taste in books and finances. I have copies of both.
GROUP ONE, VOLUMES I - V, EARLY TALES
These five volumes deal primarily with Tolkien's writings before the publication of The Hobbit (1937) and The Lord of the Rings (1954-55). In them, Tolkien was struggling as a still unknown author to create his first history of Middle-earth.
Vol 1 & 2, The Book of Lost Tales Part 1 ( 1983) & 2 (1984). The Book of Lost Tales was written during the 1910s and 1920s. Wikipedia describes it this way: "The framework for the book is that a mortal Man visits the Isle of Tol Eressëa where the Elves live. In the earlier versions of the `Lost Tales' this man is named Eriol, of some vague north European origin, but in later versions he becomes Ælfwine, an Englishman of the Middle-ages."
Vol. 3, The Lays of Beleriand (1985). These are collections of poems, many of them incomplete, written between the 1920s and the late 1940s.
Vol 4, The Shaping of Middle-earth (1986).Lesen Sie weiter... ›

But I was wrong, This book has immense significance to every Tolkien researcher that want to produce a theory and need reference in several H.o.M.E volumes. for example try the entry "Glamdring" the famous sword that appeared at The Hobbit. With this index I can easily see that the first appearance of Glamdring is in volume 6 - therefore one can understand why Elrond was so indifferent when Gandalf showed him his ancestor's sword! it wasn't in the Legendarium at that time!
That is just a tiny and unimportant example that can show you the amount of time that the combined index will save you when you are doing your research about Tolkien's Legendarium. If I did not had the combined index in this case, I surely had to search over 12 different indexes to make sure that Glamdring is not Legendarium's genuine artifact.
Novice Tolkien's fans will not be interested in this book, It is not for people that didn't read the H.o.M.E or even people that read it but don't do much research. It is very recommended for the Hard core Tolkien's researches that will make the best of it.
I've personally been frustrated when doing my own, amateurish reference work. Looking through the index of twelve volumes can be considerable work. This makes it so much easier. I know that I'll delve deeper into those twelve volumes than I have before, and as with all readings of Tolkien, will come out the better for it.
